'Fifty Shades of Grey' Sparks Off-Broadway Spoof
Comedy troupe to tackle Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele affair in a musical.
Curtains up on Christian Grey!
Fifty Shades of Grey, E L James’ kinky New York Times’ bestseller, is coming to an off-Broadway theater this January, according to Time.
But don’t expect seriously sultry, handcuff-happy sex scenes. Created by the musical comedy group Baby Wants Candy, 50 Shades! The Musical is a song-and-dance spoof on the X-rated trilogy, which originally began as Twilight fan fiction.
Instead of blush-worthy bedroom play, 50 Shades! The Musical — playing the Gramercy Theater on Jan. 11 and 12 — takes on 11 original musical numbers, such as “They Get Nasty,” “I Don’t Make Love, I “F#*!” and “There’s a Hole Inside of Me.”
The show has previously played at Chicago’s Apollo Theatre and the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Scotland.The Telegraph. “It will be raunchy. We are 100% going there.”
